We already have a larger unit and the cat is able to activate the RF detector without problem, however this one is a lot smaller and it appears that it doesn’t quite detect his chip until he’s further in the chute, ie when we open it ourselves.
Looking to offload this one to someone with a smaller cat (Jasper is a large/long cat).
The cat flap build quality is ok. Be warned however the flap does not latch for cats leaving the premises so you cannot selectively choose which cat stays in and out if you have two. Vet n pet direct were fantastic though and allowed a refund with no postage to pay. Very impressed.
I agree with the comments of it being too small. My cats are very reluctant to use it, one is wide and the other is tall so both struggle.
Excellent product that works very well. Highly recommended for purchase if you are having problems with unwanted neighbourhood cats.
I have 10yr old burmese cat who I thought would be reluctant to use this but a few goes and she was alright with it. Not feeding any neighbourhood cats now. We previously had a staywell 400 catflap.- this is much smaller than the staywell and you will need the mounting glass adapter as the circle for a standard cat flap is larger than this cat flap. It would be handy to know this before buying!
